Desperate Housewives meets The Witches of Eastwick in Susie Moloney’s wonderfully creepy novel, The Thirteen. A paranormal thriller that blends contemporary suburban concerns and mores with the fiendishly supernatural, The Thirteen is the story of a woman who returns to her childhood home with her daughter, only to discover that the community is now run by a group of witches with nasty plans for the both of them. A wonderfully dark and original tale, The Thirteen will appeal to a wide range of readers—from fans of Laura Kasischke, Jennifer McMahon, Melissa De la Cruz, and Melissa Marr to anyone who has ever appreciated the delicious chills of Rosemary’s Baby.
Paula Wittmore hasn't been back to Haven Woods since she left as a disgraced teenager. Now she's returning to care for her suddenly ailing mother, and she's bringing her daughter and a pile of emotional baggage. She's also bringing, unknowingly, the last chance for her mother's closest frenemies . . . twelve women bound together by a powerful secret that requires the sacrifice of a thirteenth.
Creepy City!!! This book was so good that I just could not put it down no matter how freaky it got. This neighborhood is NOT the one you want to live in. I really enjoyed the main character Paula and I really felt myself pulling for her even BEFORE I knew what the scary neighborhood witches had in store for her and her daughter Rowan. Yikes! This group gives new meaning to the saying "with friends like this who needs enemies?"! There were side stories within the main story which offered even more depth to the pages. I think it would be interesting for the author to do a prequel to better get to know some of the other characters. I will warn you that this book contained a few parts that were a bit stomach turning but it did fit in with the story line so I did not find it to be "too much". If you are looking for a gripping read, pick up The Thirteen. Just be prepared to sleep with the lights on for awhile! You can order on Amazon...
